Admiralty Towers, a Pompano Beach condo, continued to exclude families with young children long after federal and county law prohibited it agreed during Broward County's civil rights investigation to stop enforcing its bylaw about children. The condo is accused of rejecting a Canadian vacationer's purchase contract to buy a unit last fall because the man and his wife have three daughters under the age of 12, and Admiralty's bylaws excluded kids under 12. That bylaw can no longer be legally enforced because federal law from the late 1980s protects people from housing discrimination based on familial status. This reminds me of a past rental where a landlord, an attorney, rewrote his listing to forbid children. Natually I recognized that this was a form of federally protected discriminatio...

  Good news! There's enough faith in real estate for builders to resume construction. One of the few places in the state that new constuction is taking place is just north of Fort Lauderdale in Pompano Beach. SobelCo builders of Boca Raton just launched a 34 unit project to build Barefoot Beach Villas on A1A and Atlantic Boulevard just 700 feet from the beach. Prices start at $299,990 and 11 properties have already been sold. The groundbreaking is expected to take place in about two months, with possible completion next summer.  If you or someone you know is interested in buying, renting, or selling real estate please feel free to contact me.   Thanks, Randy

Vice Mayor and Palm-Aire resident, George Brummer, will be the namesake of the new city park that he championed. The five acre parcel of land that sits in the heart of Palm-Aire along West Palm-Aire Drive had just broken ground a few weeks ago and is slated to be finished in the late fall. (see that post here) Thanks goes to Palm-Aire United for recommending the idea and paying the processing fees.

The next time that you're driving down the Florida Turnpike near Sample Road take a look at the landfill popularly known as Mount Trashmore. You will find that they have installed a H O L L Y W O O D sign on it! They are filming a new movie called "Rock of Ages" this summer starring Tom Cruise, about a hair-band era rock star. The film will also feature some other great talent like Alec Baldwin, Catherine Zeta-Jones and Paul Giamatti. The film is slated for a June 1st, 2012 release. That's all I have so far in regards to the details, but I'll be sure to post more as the information comes in from my many sources in South Florida. -Randy Harden

I drive almost 20,000 miles a year, because my brother and I cover two counties for our real estate business.  Much of our business is referrals so we travel ocean to Everglades- Pembroke Pines to West Palm Beach.  That is A LOT of Time in your car. When I was younger, it made me crazy to drive the same car more than two years, so I was the perfect leasing candidate.  It was as if I wore THE SAME DRESS EVERYDAY for two years.....Its boring!  I just had to get a new one as often as possible!! Over time leases became three years, so "that dress" stayed with me even longer!  When I started buying the Lexus SUV's, I finally found a dress I really liked to be in everyday for more than the three years.                                                                                        MY D...

Pompano Beach man claims that he copyrighted the famous melody played through out the United States in just about every sporting event. The Charge! melody is now under dispute by the man who claims to have written it, Bobby Kent of Pompano Beach, FL. If his claim has merit then he could stand to make thousands a year in royalties.

Yesterday Roberta Wieder and I attended a luncheon at the East Room in Palm-Aire Country Club at the invitation of Palm-Aire Friends of the Arts. I was suprised to be handed a plaque of recognition and thanks for our support to this charitable organization over the years. Wieder Realty gladly helps them out by covering the costs of some of their printing, so they can continue doing the services that they provide. Palmp-Aire Friends of the Arts is a non-profit organization that holds events and group trips to musical and theatrical performances in Miami, Broward and Palm Beach. They raise funds and then each year they give donations to programs and theathers who need their support. They are a wonderful organizatoin filled with kind folks and I recommend joining their ranks if you are a P...

That's right! Jerry Lewis was a big fan of Palm-Aire Country Club when it was still brand new. He is just one of the many famous people who would visit Palm-Aire, however I think he is one of the few that actually filmed part of a movie here. From the youtube link below you can see a scnene from Hardly Working. Notice the tall white buildings in the background? This part of the film is shot on location at the former tennis club in Palm-Aire where Royal Point now stands and where the new city park is slated to be with a year. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=2QioJUn0BzM
